What Great Officials Do

Syracuse University All-American lacrosse player Matt Palumb. In Matt’s encore career he has served as a Division I basketball and lacrosse official. Matt shares his journey into the world of becoming an official while still in college. He was a four-year starter in the goal for the Orange during the Canadian connection era winning national championships in the late 1980s. Matt shares the lessons he has learned officiating basketball and lacrosse, what a coach should expect from officials and what officials expect from coaches. Fascinating is his discussion about fan foolishness, sportsmanship, and the best compliment a coach can give an official. Matt explains why refereeing basketball is so much harder than lacrosse.
